Comment Archives: stories: News & Opinion: Ask a Mexican!

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

The Mexican its right. Sonora its the perfect example of race and culture mix; actually, european and native´s are blended as no other part of Mexico does. In central and south México, european and native family backgrounds are unlikely to get mixed. In Sonora, european and native are so mixed that Sonorans don´t even know it. The Opata tribe, its totally gone. Not because the where exterminated, no, the Opatas women fell in love with the european man coming to explore the dangerous gold mines in the inhospitable old west (most of the times they came with no family). So Opata culture "disappeared", giving birth to the Rio Sonora culture. In Sonora, almost everyone has either Yaqui, Mayo, Opata, Pápago or Seri backgrounds. That is one of the main factors that model this region of North American culture (Arizona included).

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

Thanks for your recommendation on Poblano Hot Sauce! I live just north of Tucson so will look for it. I buy Cholula because I don't want to spend my pesos on another brand only to find I hate it. If the restaurants had a wider variety of sauces I'd try them all to find my favorite.

Bslap: As a guy who once had a job where I got letters from the public all the time, I can confirm that there really are folks who think this way and write letters like this.

Re: “Ask a Mexican

Identity change goes thru 5 stages:
First, you believe what the dominant culture tells you about yourself
Second, you are getting a hint that it ain't true.
Third, you realize you have been had, and you get mad as h**l.
Fourth, you are still angry, but youbegin educating yourself about what you really are, rather than what you have been told you are.
Fifth, you let the anger go, as you fully integrate to your own new identity. What the dominant culture says is no longer relevant to your own identity.

Re: “Ask a Mexican

Yo' Gringa in Mananland, quit trying to appease the Mexican culture. The more you give them, the more they want. Live your own life, take pride in who you are and continue learning of other cultures. Not trying to make them feel better about themselves. You can't make people feel pride in their own race if they don't already feel that way and it's not your responsibility to do so.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

A Mexican is a citizen of Mexico. Apparently they and you are rather racist. Do you write this column from Mexico. Me thinks that you "the very smart one" should help your fellow men.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

Güeros are not very popular in España either. They're usually Vascos who often think they're better than the la raza. Look up Limpieza de Sangre.

Re: “Ask the Mexican

You might want to add that under the dictatorship of Santa Ana, there was very little freedom and that those few who took on the entire Mex. Army, stood for that freedom that all in the area desired. But it was a handful of freedom loving Tejanos that put their lives on the line and, ultimately, won. Some were actual Mexicans. The struggle was about the love of freedom not racist ideology as what many would have us believe. And as far as the Tejanos adhering to the issue of slavery, you might want to look at Santa Ana's whole country, especially the elitists, that treated its populace as slaves.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

I have supported protests in this country because things do change. But when there are protests for immigration that include illegals here in America it really boils my blood. Law enforcement should raid these protests and arrest and deport those who are illegal.
First of all these illegals are felons by breaking federal law by being here. If they have no respect for our laws in the first place, they disrespect the people that are doing the right thing but trying to enter our country going through the right channels. If you disrespect our laws we DON'T WANT YOU HERE!!
You are going to make this great country of ours onto a 3rd World Country.

An American the right way

Re: “Ask the Mexican

Aztlan is a myth created by a culture that is devoid of a true heritage. Or at least one that they can be proud of. So they made up one based on Aztec history. The only problem: Most that claim Aztlan have little to zero Aztec blood in them. Spanish, German, Irish, Chinese, etc. but not a single drop of Aztec blood. Many of these so-called Aztlaneros continue to fabricate myths to support their cause such as they espouse the lie that the U.S. stole the SW from Mex. when in fact, a total of $41,000,000 was paid for it. Now they threaten violent revolution ie; "OCCUPIED AMERICA" BY RODOLFO ACUÑA (but they need to get the 5th edition - IMPORTANT!)


2. "MESSAGE TO AZTLÁN" BY RODOLFO "CORKY" GONZALES (there are poems that tell the kids to make a war on the U.S., to kill white people and so much more!

So as we can see, Aztlan is a myth created by a culture that lives by threats, theft and living off of the hard work of others, by claiming welfare benefits when their illegals come to the U.S. and then trying to steal land and all that goes with it, using threats and intimidation. La Raza is the heritatage that they claim and that has permeated our society (Almost all criminal latin based gangs claim La Raza and sport tattoos depicting Aztec symbolism: Aztlan).

Re: “Ask the Mexican

Well reading this post was a great waste of time. The author is a disgrace to his race with all of his disgusting language and put downs of not only women but his own race as well as other ones. GA needs to go out and get a real job as he's a total failure as a columnist. A Dear Helen he is not! A piece of garbage that demeans his culture and himself, he is!

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

I think, McLaury, you may have skipped 4th grade. That's when we all learned the meaning of "it's."

Which is the contraction of "It is."

You used "it's" when you meant to use "its."

Shame on you...

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

I wish I could read this column. My mother tongue is English, and, since I live in America, have studied the subject and am fairly good at it, am puzzled why, after trying to read this column cannot comprehend it's meaning because of the slanted Spanish.
Shame, I really would like to know what they are talking about.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

"like so many people who work in dangerous jobs no güero would accept" -- Bull! It's the low pay, not the danger guera. Talk to any one from the Ironworkers union about dangerous work. That's one of those unions decimated by the importation of illegals to work jobs for dirt cheap.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

Asking a Mexican is ok, as long as when you ask them if they are an American and they answer yes. If they come back with Mexican, then you and he can stay Stuck On Stupid!
